I really don't like how casual the raping is here. Like, it's barely a side note?

Sure the MC is optimistic but it comes off kinda disjointed? She tries, fails, gets r*ped, and she's all "Curses, foiled again. I'll definitely win next time!" all lightheartedly.

It feels really off to me. Asides from that the plot is pretty decent, which makes those moments feel even more off.

If you're writing a lighthearted comedy, don't try to brush off heavy subjects like r*pe dammit!

i haven't started the novel yet but I am perplexed as to who decided that a dark twist on a fluffy romantic cooking novel was a good idea.

im already feeling hesitant

The novel is more of geared towards a josei rather than shoujo, unlike what the novel cover might look like- I personally think it's deceiving. I came into this novel having the misconception that this was going to be more happy-go-lucky with a female lead great at cooking, like a typical airheaded Japanese protagonist. I was pretty wrong, a lot of the novel so far has to do with cooking but cooking is not the focus, but cooking does get more involved with the novel as it goes on. Usually... more>> though, the focus of the novel is the romance and the characters- and this is what I like about the novel. A lot of things are explained in this novel and the author doesn't straight tell us that the leads are falling in love, but shows it. Although they do bicker and the male lead's thoughts are tsundere and condescending sometimes he shows that he cares by the little actions that he does. And the female lead isn't dense, occasionally she acts out- which I think is understandable as she's from the 21st century where women can be much more unrestrained and have a lot more freedom- but she can tell in his actions that he's just a big tsundere and he does care. What surprises me is that she also knows how to play her cards well- when to advance and when to retreat. I wouldn't say she's cunning, but she is pretty sensible and does think things through.

I've been disappointed by Qidian's novels so far- Hidden Marriage, The Bad New Wife is A little sweet, etc. Because it's so god damn unrealistic and what really irks me- is the romance. I don't understand how it developed. The male lead unconditionally fell for the female lead- reading the beginning left me so unsatisfied. And we all know about the realism in Hidden Marriage or The Bad New Wife, it's just not there (or maybe you don't know because you've never read it- but take my word for it.. The development makes the lead way too OP the villains too 2-D, etc.)

I've also been disappointed with cooking novels, Here Comes The Lady Chef was too formulated like your typical Chinese novel plot- people underestimate the MC, tries to humiliate her, gets face slapped. It feels so recycled.

This novel just felt so fresh to me, plus it was a compelling read. I just love the way that the writer writes her story, transmigration is an overused trope and godly cook novels aren't uncommon, but the author does it in a way that makes you want to read more. They mix the plot, things progress in different ways and I understand the development.

Of course it's not a perfect novel. There are bad parts. One thing is that the author makes r*pe so very casual. I guess for the time- the dude and girl were on their wedding night, it was considered normal. But it still rubbed me the wrong way. I want to give this a 4 star originally but the novel has so many one stars I just feel like boosting it up. To me the novel does not deserve three stars, the development is pretty good. And why is this rated lower than Perfect Secret Love? The r*pe is even more casual there- the female lead is too unrealistic and the development is honestly so tr*shy. Is it because this started as a Qidian novel and PSL didn't? Idk

but anyways, do give this a chance <<less

1- I like cooking novels like any other but until now this book IS NOT about cooking

2- the MC is female so as a female I see myself frustrated with how the story is going. There is not background that explains how she transmigrated. She smack the ML in the face with a booth, she is trying to conquer him with food, she is letting him treat her like $... , and last her plans are s*upid. By the way all this just in the first 10 chapter and in the first day of transmigration

3- I stop on chapter 10 when she is pretending to "call the soul" cause I couldn't take it no more, this is not about cooking, this is about a s*upid girl with bad luck.

Putting aside the controversial introductory r*pe scene at the beginning, the plot itself is not written too terribly when compared to its peers in the transmigration genre, no ruthless assassin or cold blooded doctor Mary Sue type MC, just a girl who is well versed in cooking which when translated to Ancient China, surprise surprise, everyone is astonished with modern world cuisine. The supporting characters and the 'villains' are not one dimensional cardboard cutouts, and have a little more complexity to their personalities and their relationships with the MC than... more>> the norm.

Whoopdeedoo, once the ML comes onto the scene, he starts wanting to control everything, forcefully doing things against her will. The ML is definitely the biggest downfall for this novel and for a slice of life type romance novel, the drama between him and the MC gets pretty serious, highlighting the fundamental issues within their relationship that just gets swept under the rug.


The ML, after returning from a trip comes to a misunderstanding about the ancestral heirloom that the MC picks up on accident, after rejecting the confession of the 2nd ML, and later makes the MC serve him and this female performer that she already had insecurities about. Later on, the MC is framed by the princess to make her look like she was cheating on the ML with some business associate of hers. Without trusting or even listening to her, he pushes her aside and gets excessively drunk, later on becoming intimate and getting caught in bed with the MC's bit*h half sister.


The pattern always follows with the ML not believing the MC out of sheer jealousy and possessiveness and making his own preconceptions about something before doing something awful and then being forgiven later on. There is no trust whatsoever and I kinda was wishing for the MC to just dump his ass, become an independent business tycoon and make him regret it forever. <<less

This novel is pretty bad.

... more>>
  1. She transmigrates and gets r*ped, cooks for herself and her rapist, he steals her portions and then r*pes her again cause she talked back to him.

The story afterwards is a mix of meh cooking descriptions and bad historical anachronisms that have nothing to do with actual Chinese history. The tone switches between campy p*rno to foodie adventure to gritty r*pe drama, often within the span of a single chapter. Zero flow and consistency.

The ML is a misogynistic criminal that hates to show his sensitive side. He only realises he liked her after she "dies" by falling off a cliff. Lmao, after you treat her like s#it, r*ped her, she cooks for you and you s#it on her cooking as well, now you like her? Of course, you would be sad, you just lost a competent s*ave after all, cause that's all he thought of her.

Well after that arc, the FL separates from the rest of the cast and goes on to travel on her own, using her cooking skills as a way to get by. We see nothing of the ML until way later in the story, and tbh, this part of the novel is much more enjoyable than the first one.


All in all, not recommended. If you want to read a cooking novel, better read Gourmet of Another World. <<less

Earnest female protagonist finds love in her rapist, who all along was her one true love as her family and fiance are all villains (not a spoiler), and proceeds to correct ancient china's faults. (-_-)

Ok ok, it's one of those classic chinese josei novels that basically is the same "destined dude falls in love with smart-talking female protagonist that is super-uber-competent and can do no wrong", with a minimal amount of "court intrigue" thrown in for nothing more than an attempt at making the reader distracted in hopes of... more>> making the reader not go "hm... there isn't much plot to the story at all" but instead only makes me say "These plots and setups are really, really repetitive".

Passable development and character depth, nonetheless, and actually some really fun scenes and concepts other authors haven't played with yet, as well as bonus props for having a Female-Protag-That-Needs-No-Man while still making her seem vulnerable at some times outside of normal "Woe is my romance! My heart is too big! I'm too kind! My only weakness is that others hate me for my perfection!" rigamarole that you should expect if you ever read this style of story before (Descent of Phoenix, The Feast, ect)

Would have rated this a 3 star, but the novel, and the protagonist, insists on focusing on the food, food culture, and other aspects of cooking, while still trying to respect modern cooking and traditional cooking. Basically, it gets a bonus star for actually having decent cooking descriptions and (somewhat) accurate view on the food industry unlike other novels that seem only to know of cooking from cooking minigames. <<less

Don't be fooled by the cover! And the title too!

It has mature content for god sake. I do hope they change the cover.

I Iike how the MC is a headstrong girl but always argue with ML due to her personality. But somehow they make up afterwards, and the scene is endearing to me

... more>>

It's about a girl transmigrated into an ancient Chinese period however somehow married to a bandit. The title due to her one of her merit is cooking in order to capture the stomach of her husband and survive in ancient China by cooking in various places.


And I've seen the drama too!

Definitely bookmarked! Author, please don't stop writing! ??? <<less

The controversial scene in chapter 2: This ‘r*pe’ scene that everyone was complaining about was actually a consummation of their marriage. In ancient China, it was relatively commonplace for a couple to have s*x on the very same day they meet each other. As a woman from the modern era, the MC would not be used to this custom. However. While the MC was indeed disoriented by her sudden situation, she did not seem completely against doing it with him. The biggest proof that this is not r*pe is that the victim would not think of dating the person during the supposed ‘r*pe’ scene


The MC admitted that she was attracted to the ML at first sight and expressed that she would have preferred to date him first. The way she seemed to view the situation is that they are starting their relationship with s*x. If you think of it this way, it makes sense why she would casually cook a meal for them right afterwards. The act of cooking a meal for him was a statement declaring that she acknowledges that they are in a relationship.

  • In the MC’s perspective, the “Let’s get to know each other first before we do it” situation turned into a “Let’s do it first and then get to know each other later” situation.
  • In the ML’s perspective, he was simply following customs for marriage and expects the bride to have been mentally prepared for this. Also, take note that the he was an undercover agent disguised as a bandit and was suspicious that she was a spy sent to seduce him.


  1. MC: The MC is one of the most likable female MCs that I’ve come across. I love how she was able to oppose the norms of the patriarchal customs of ancient China to build a really successful career. I love that she was willing to stand against the ML when he tried to make her give up her career. She loved the ML, but she wasn’t so blind as to cave to his whims.
  2. ML: I’ve come to dislike the ML the more I read on. I hate how he abused his power to suppress the MC’s career and cause all sorts of problems for her. In a society that is dominated by wealthy man, I expected that the ML would be her main support, but I’m disappointed that he is just as bad as the other villains
  3. 2nd ML: The second male lead syndrome is real here. Unlike the ML, the second ML was fully supportive for the MC’s career and tried his best to help her defend against the ML’s oppression. His shortcoming is that he’s too childish and not quite at her level.
The MC’s fight against opposition is another highlight of the novel and one that makes me respect the MC: As a rising chef, the MC has a lot of competitors that will use shady methods to suppress her and there are many more that will try to steal her recipes. There’s a whole bunch of shady characters and quite a few of them are in position of power. It makes it quite difficult for the MC to protect her recipes from people who she can’t oppose.

DONGHUA: I came across the donghua (Chinese animation) and loved it. The animation quality is shaky, but they don’t skimp out on the food ?. All the food is so mouthwatering. Totally recommend watching it.

This novel basically shows being r*ped is ok as long as the attacker is handsome.

The food and cooking aspect is good but ultimately this is a romance novel so at the very least I wish there was an effort to make the ML bearable. I can't buy the main couple when the ML is a walking and breathing garbage and the MC is so annoyingly cheerful despite it. The ML face slapping the MC and then him repenting for it after goes on in a ridiculous and exhausting cycle.

... more>>

there's a part where the MC adopts a pair of rabbit and she insist treating them like her kids and calling the ML the father rabbit and talking to them like children it was just so cringe. As someone who had pet rabbits it's just... why. Rabbits are NOT stuffed toys so I get miffed when authors write them like such.


This is one of the better translated novels out there but this is was really just disappointing. 1 star for the author having the decency to show how disgusting the ML is at the very beginning so you won't have to waste your time and energy getting invested on this. <<less

The translation was dropped, read it in MTL and frankly, quite liked it. True there is a r*pe in the start, but it was unavoidable

... more>>

the ML was undercover as a bandit and they purposely gave her the girl to test him. So if he hadn't done the did, it could have ended his carefully planned trap.


The ML and MC have a great story, and I loved each step of their romance. The MTL is not that hard to read so give it a try. This book is really really good. All the characters are well-drawn especially the side characters. My favorite is the gay couple and of course the second male lead, who unlike other stories do end up with a love story of his own. The end chapters telling about the children is especially fun to read. <<less

Couldn't finish this below average novel since I can't stand the ML, totally unlike-able and the MC is too much of a pushover to me. From some skim reading of future chapters doesn't really seem to change much so I'll drop it earlier and save my braincells.

This novel is not that bad to be honest at this point rather it is funny and I really like the bickering between ML and MC, may be it is tagged as r*pe and cooking but only the first night is forceful (like many novels) and their is lot of cooking and variety of dishes mention from different era's and the female lead is unique and funny in short she knows very well how to tame her ML vice n versa handsome angry ML also

I love this novel!!

I read it despite of the negative remarks and reviews about it and found out that for me it’s groundless.

Unlike a typical time-travelled female protagonist, even though Yaoyao is strong and not easily beaten down, her mind and her life doesn’t evolve revenge those people who wronged her in the past.

... more>> She is very positive, very quick witted and always managed to find a silver line in a dark circumstances. An admirable MC and makes this novel very enjoyable to read.

ML is an annoying guy. But at the moment, at a repentant mode. We’ll wait on how he can make up to the wrong he did to MC <<less

MC was arranged to be kidnapped on her way to the supposed bridegroom's place and was given to another. It doesn't matter if they're married or not, she didn't consent to the s*xual interc**rse, she clearly said no and some people thinks it's ok?!! As long as one of the party doesn't consent then it is r*pe!!! Doesn't matter if they're married so don't freaking romanticised r*pe and claiming it's ok just because they're married and she has no say at all?!

I've been hardly convincing myself to continue reading this throughout.

So far, for 50 chapters i've read, I think 90% felt like fillers. And MC is kinda immature and her actions towards male lead kinda have no direction?! I dont know how to describe except that she's afraid of of death so she acts meekly on him at times but kinda do stuff to irritate him or make fun of while aiming to get his favor thru her cooking (felt childish and s*upid play to me). This goes repetitively with different... more>> scenarios that felt has no sense except it irritates me shes complaining nonstop over his action and yet shes toying him mostly, which is why I am saying it felt like filler chapters. I dont know if its trying to be funny or what but her action has no direction. I dont even know how I survive keep reading until 50c.

I wanna give chance but too many chapters for getting MC just acting immature towards male lead while narration trynna build her as smarty woman doesnt felt right for me esp purpose of her every action goes unreasonable. This is not my cut of tea. <<less

I am really surprised this book isn't rated higher.

I totally acknowledge the complaints about the r*pe in the beginning. It is bad and not everyone can move past that. But it isn't significantly worse than other similar stories I have read and this novel is not like this throughout. The ML is cold and possessive, but does grow through the story progression with the rest of the cast.

To be honest, I really enjoyed this novel. The characters are well developed and each have their own growth arcs and conclusions. The... more>> translations are rough at times. The first quarter goes well then it falls off the rails. I especially liked the time skip at the end to show how everyone ended up down the road. The way MC uses modern business techniques and cooking knowledge to build up her businesses was fun to me too. Things in the story seemed within the realm of possibility, and not be too forced. It seemed to me the author put a lot of care into each of their characters and stories. I was sad when it had to end. <<less

Aye ya ya

Seeing all these horrible reviews and the ratings being so low I would not have picked up this book if it wasn't for my cousins recommendation. I'd give it a 4 starts because the storyline isn't like AMAZING but it's still alright, and the missing chapters and translation is ekks but because of the r*pe low rating I'd bump it up to a 5 just to balance it out.

To be honest the novel was a really decent historical novel with cooking involved. If you like 'Transmigrator Meets Reincarnator',... more>> this is something similar but of lower quality. Also I'm just giving y'all a heads up. Some parts of the translation suckkkkkksss (but like 70% is still ok) and the worst part is there a quite a few missing chapters (even in the raws) which makes some conflict resolution a wee bit unclear but it doesn't affect much of the plot based on what I have read.

All I see from the negative reviews are the comments on her cooking for/ falling in love with her rapist. I must say if you don't read the tags please do not read the novel. It's like it's like knowing that there's angst and complaining that the story is too sad.

I understand the r*pe is a bad bad bad thing but please this is a novel take everything with a pinch of salt. You know how some authors are, especially when it comes to historical romance. One of the reasons for the really bad reviews is probably because the author didn't just insert a one liner for the r*pe, there was like 2 chapters (?) on it. Opps that's on her. In addition, this was also a dub-con kinda thing (I think coz she finds him kinda hot and would totally bag him for a one night stand but at the same time she would rather it at her own devices kinda thing and felt that she had to put up a fight because this modern girl ain't submitting) but let's not dive into that.

Second part is about how controlling ML is about her career. Wells, there was only one bad incident tbh and that was him acting out of spite which is part of my complaint under the romance/misunderstanding section that I will be touching on below. Other than that I find him more than supportive towards her career growth. Besides that another complaint about him is that he's a total ass which is true. Hahaha wells in the beginning it was because of him being

an undercover guy and he though she was a spy soo...

and he didn't really understand his feelings then but he did the little things for her even than. Later on, ... wells it's just the author being real bad a writing a ML who doesn't showcase his emotions well and doesn't know how to communicate well (same goes to the the FL too, she can't communicate either). Other than that, he's still ok. Not the cold no presence type or the unconditionally supportive wife s*ave type. He's some type but I don't know what type hahaha

Let's get on to the review then. I really honestly think that it is a decent novel. It had all the right elements to make a good novel. The plot flow was fine. The writing was decent and the characters were enjoyable.

The story started out with the MC transmigrating into the original host's body on her wedding night after she was kidnapped by a group of bandits. Warning almost full summary ahead:


Then the ML forced himself onto her because he thought that she was a spy sent by the gang leader and wanted to make sure that he dish what they expected of him. Afterall, she was his wife (ancient people mentality going on please take it with a pinch of salt). Later on, the MC a was so hungry she offered to "serve" him to help her empty stomach and so the relationship was built on food. He said no but his actions proved otherwise.

So, their relationship developed this way in the mountain bandits stronghold where she as the third in commands wife and he was a spy from the government sent over to defeat this pest of a bandit. They fell in love but with one side devoting her all to him but the other side loving but suspecting that she was the gang leader's eyes and ears.

Later on, when the government attacked the bandit's stronghold, the MC found out that not only was the ML the spy, he was also a noble. And when she was about to approach him during the fight, she heard him say to his subordinate not to call her sister in law (or something that is related to her title) and that was when she 'knew' that she was just a plaything blablabla and so when she was held a hostage and all and all and managed to escape, she decided to leave and not find him. Of course the ML was remorseful because he thought she be dead.

The MC knew that she was setup to be kidnapped by the group of bandits by her stepmother and stepsister so she wanted revenge. She found out that her ex-fiancé and her stepsister who was married (as she took on her place and replace her as the eldest miss in their family to be married) was going to the capital and so she headed there dressed as a male (this literary continues on until she got married).

Along the way, she dish out her awesome cooking skills and helped a young noble (a member of royalty which is the son of the current emperor's sister aka the 2nd ML) to survive as they headed to the capital together. They had tons of fun but she found out that this noble knew the ML so she dumped him (when the ML wanted to bring the noble back) and sneaked into the capital herself without telling the noble to avoid him picking her up when she arrive (she didn't wanna see the ML/ let him know that she's alive.

She found a job at a restaurant as the head chef and later on got found out by the noble and eventually the ML and blablabla drama here and there which includes a very favoured Princess she offended and in turn the Empress Dowager, a prince who wants the throne and some family drama in her husbands family. There was a lot of misunderstandings between the ML and MC but it eventually resulted into a 'forced marriage'. There will be a fight for the throne thing that really wasn't necessary and didn't add much to the plot tbh but hey it's part of the plot sooooo. Somewhere along the line she wins the favour of numerous people and becomes rich with her restaurant etc That's about it for the entire story.


For the overall plot, this is the general gist: bandit hideout, on the road to the capital, the capital, chef at the restaurant, drama with the the Princess, married and owner of the restaurant, family drama at the ML's side, revenge at the step sister's side (but not really explained much), opened a new pastry shop and dessert house somewhere along the way, in between palace drama and after the end of the palace drama that's about it.

The cooking part of the story isn't like the normal slice of life cooking type where it's all about the food and every cooking step is described and the way the food looks and smell is pinpoint down to the finest detail. Personally I enjoy this type more than the usually type. It's a brief (but not too brief) touch on the food that hits the right marks to make me curious about the food and not bored that I had to skip the entire paragraph. I really liked that the cooking had a direction and it isn't all about earning the big bucks. She was willing to share her knowledge and it was one of the ultimate goals in the novel.

The antagonist in the story, I could already picture some rebirth/ transmigration counterattack stories haha! Because some of them (ahem Princess Liu Li) are really really brain dead which is so silly.

But apart from that, the MC in the story is one of the most humane one I've seen so far. She doesn't get revenge to the point of no return where people get killed or r*ped to death or whatnot. She is open to second chances and people turning over a new leaf despite the harms they have caused her and that's what's different about her and this story. Side note, the second male leads and other characters all have their happily ever after which is super sweet.

Some cons or eeks part for me:

Honestly, the MC is low-key arrogant even though she doesn't have the capacity to be arrogant. She's a literal nobody and she just offends everyone just because she couldn't hold her temper. If everyone else didn't try to bail her out she'd be dead in a ditch somewhere. It's not this exaggerated but if she kept her mouth shut one or two times she could have had a much better life. Just saying. Her golden fingers are her connections really. Because this isn't one of those exaggerated cooking novels, her cooking wouldn't have saved her. But at the same time, her mouth can really scold which results in some good faceslapping especially for the third aunt in the ML's family

The romance... There were quite a lot of unnecessary misunderstandings. Like some of it is so s*upid. But they ended up ok. However, I think some of the ways they resolved the bumps in the road was in the missing chapters so... yeah we never really got how they got around to it. And personally, I feel that the MC doesn't really compromise in the relationship. She always just cries of give the ML the cold shoulder and he is expected to just give in. And some stuff could have just been explained before hand instead of making this so... messy. So, yeah... the author and the relationship development wasn't something I enjoyed that much. The conflicts didn't really lead to relationship development. It's just conflict for conflict sake and the part about him not trusting her... I dunno I just felt that it didn't come out right. But it's still alright though. Nothing too teeth grinding.

For me the palace drama was really really really reallllllyyyy subpar. Like the 3rd Prince was just really power hungry and I can imagine him getting a rebirth and be like why the hell am I even like this or his wife being a transmigrator and be like bro you need to chill or help him ascend to the throne because he seems to be really more capable than the crown Prince tbh. Oh wells, I think those chapters were kinda skippable but I didn't so meh meh.

Overall, if you enjoy business management, family drama, palace drama (maybe not too much of this but it's still there), adventure type (? There was a dash of it in there) novels, this is a definite recommend. Just go past the r*pe part in like the first 2 chapters or so if you get triggered by it. <<less

It’s a novel focused on food at least the first 100-150 of it but I liked it. Afterwards the story focused more on FL career growth. It’s funny because while I was reading it I felt it would be such a good alternative story if the villainess could rebirth and focused on her love? The characters were very stereotypical and unidimensional and I didn’t find them very interesting. I did like the approach to diversity in ancient world setting and the plots were entertaining. The love between the FL and... more>> ML was lot based on push and pull... not my favorite type of romance and the FL was such a Mary Sue as well. I would rate it 3.5 or 3.75 <<less
